Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

3) A song that makes you want to throw the radio out the window rather then listen to it.

I have my own choice for a song that I can hardly stand to listen to. Initially, it isn’t so bad, but during the Summer that this hit I’m Not In Love by 10cc came out, it was played constantly all day long. Not an hour went by that the radio I listened to as a teenager played this song at least once. If you didn’t care for the song to begin with, you were made to feel that you were the minority. By the end of the Summer of 1975, almost everyone had enough of it. To this day,I don’t remember if they ever had any other hits. If I saw an album or tape of theirs, I ran the other way.
